Out of MGI at 13.91. Average entry cost was 13.71 so I made $200. Sloppy trade that ended up OK - not proud of it.

Out of YOD at 3.30. Entry cost was 3.20 so I made $100, but I could have gotten out at a better price on Thursday.

Still in BKS - entry was 300 shares at 16.67, now trading about 16.60.

Easy - weekly MA(X) will give you the weekly MA, but it will only plot correctly on a weekly chart (add the line "chart-display is weekly" to the bottom of your filter).

You cannot correctly display weekly indicators in daily charts, or vice-versa. A dumb limitation for which I have tried to figure out a work-around, but so far no luck.

Well, at the close today two of the three are profitable (including MGI) so I may have dodged a bullet.

Your comments are spot on and I'll likely put in tight stops at the open tomorrow to see if they run a bit - or I get tagged for a modest loss, which after the recent run of profitable trades I have had would not be too painful.

Thanks,

K

YOD is still up, although down from the close on Thursday. The others ... ouch. I'll hold for a few days but am not sure these will play out as I had hoped.

Well I added to MGI yesterday - more than I was probably meant to - to get an average cost of 13.71. Today recouped a lot of the loss from yesterday so I'm not freaking out. YOD is profitable but not at where it was on Thursday, and BKS is marginally up as well. These trades show a lack of discipline but will probably not hurt me too much.

In YOD at 3.20 about 30 minutes ago.

Also in BKS at 16.67 and MGI at 15.15 about the same time. All three are taking a beat-down today. I missed my play for LIVE at the open - damn.

General Discussion · How to code PPO crossover up

Try this:

Fetcher[
PPO(12,26) crossed above cema(PPO(12,26),9)
]



CEMA(X,Y) is a custom ema function, where X is the variable and Y is the number of days for the ema of that variable.

You might want to narrow your search a bit based on price and volume:

Fetcher[
close above 3
average volume(30) above 500000
PPO(12,26) crossed above cema(PPO(12,26),9)
]

The one I missed yesterday from the RPTT filter I use was ARWR (Arrowhead Research) - up 10+% today.

Still in - now at 5.73. Tempted to just take the gain now and not look back, but I'm going to exit at the end of the day to see if it rides a little higher.

UPDATE: Gave into the temptation and am out at 5.70 (an 8% gain). Nice trade and I'm happy with the way it played out. Probably more upside to this one, but I made my target and then some, so time to take the trade off the table.
